It's Official!! Meet Hermana Soliz

It's been super busy the last two days, getting Tara ready to leave for the Mexico City MTC.  We had a wonderful visit Tuesday evening with Stake President Brown and his family. She was set apart as a missionary that night and we stayed up late rethinking the packing situation and rearranging things over and over.  She had to let go of many things to get within the weight limits.  We went to bed exhausted! We left for the airport this morning and spent an  hour with her before she boarded.  Her sister Brooklynn had the flu and was not able to accompany us to the airport.  Tara said her goodbyes to sister, brothers, and grandma at home. Also a quick stop to see Aunt Doris and Uncle JR. We had a surprise visit from Aunt Regina at airport. I tried to get the airline to allow us to walk her to the gate, past security, but it wasn't happening.  Of course it was a bittersweet moment when we said our last goodbyes....we all cried. We are so proud of her desire to serve the Lord and to help people learn more about Him, but we will miss her sooo much!  She is in great hands and we trust she will learn so much and grow in ways unimaginable.  Can't wait to hear about it all!
On my way the the Stake President's house!
